My new 2013 CG JKUR w/ AEV Hood!

Special ordered from the factory while I was deployed to Africa. Got back a month ago and picked her up yesterday. LOVE it. 3rd Jeep and best one yet.

Live in Vegas, but IMHO the dealers here suck. No personal relationships at all and they couldn't care less. They figure lots of people here with money, so they aren't interested. Just my experience.

Ordered through Ken Garff Jeep in Salt Lake City, UT and a salesman named Nino. Awesome experience. I have Tread Lightly so, Affiliate pricing, but they did 2.5% under invoice, coordinated the new hood so it was ready to bolt on day they got it, etc. Nino even came and picked us up from the airport. Highly recommended if you're on the west coast.

Anyway, first new vehicle for me and I'm 40 years old. Decided to get her exactly how I wanted, so got Saddle Leather, 4.10's, remote start, Connectivity, 430Nav, Auto, and went body color top and flares (after much internal debate, live in Vegas, so color top is the way to go for heat on your skull.)

Expensive, but I went through Navy Federal Credit Union. They are pushing loans right now and I got for 1.99% for 72 months. Credit score not great after house debacle, around 720.

I was nervous of color not seeing it in person, but like everyone says, looks awesome in person. Maybe not for you, but works for me.

On to the pics!

Thanks all!

Only new thing coming is some Ace sliders tomorrow(?). Wasn't sure I was going to jump on the band wagon, but wanted to keep the Rubi rails, my wife is little so needed a step, and didn't want some schmuck to open a door into me in a parking lot. Cant wait!

Love to watch the post, but gonna go sit in the garage and make vroom, vroom noises, lol.

I really like the AEV hood! Probably a stupid question, but will they take your old hood and give you anything for it? Or were you able to sell it for anything? I don't want to just scrap a perfectly good hood when my 2013 comes in, but I assume that is the only option?

Thanks man! I THINK I remember that the AEV hood from elsewhere is around $800 e-coated. Add $150ish shipping and you still have to paint. I wanted to make sure the paint was dead on (dont have the skinny on a local reliable painter), so went dealer. Dealer charges $1030 for hood only, and $1062 installed and painted. They get their offset back by keeping your brand new hood.

In a nutshell, I didnt want to mess with the logistics and wanted it on when I went to pick her up. I paid a G for the AEV hood installed, painted and decal-ed. Never saw my orginal hood. Didnt seem to far off from doing it myself.

I debated this alot for a couple $15 stickers, lol. I'm probably the minority, but I thought the silver would look nice against the black vents and green hood. When I saw it in person, I'm glad I did. Different strokes, but I like it alot.

Cheers!

I love the color choice and hood with the saddle interior. Looks great. I'm picking my jkur up this weekend. The hood is going to be my first mod after seeing yours...

Yeah you can't go past the hood! : D just a quick q, what's the row of switches on the photos of the inside just near the drivers side air intake for the aircon? Is that where th diff lock switches are?

After seeing the switch out of black decals with that color, I would also have to switch them to black...the black and green makes it Pop!..seems like the silver color is an add-on that doesn't belong ...IMO....sexy jeep..love, love, love that green

That would be my Jeep if it had a black hard top and black fenders and if that color had been available in 2012. I love my silver but the green with tan interior is just... awesome.
